(Mumbling) apologies to those expecting more frequent “stuff” here. We are busy with Fairy Scholarship, not that Pirates will be neglected there, at least of the non-postmodern variety.
I shall be posting links to things of interest from now on, as well as other poetry.
I’ve also become a pirate.
sebastian saw something:
an assemblage of assorted animals
of feather and fur and dark of aspect.
sebastian heard something:
they were conferring amongst themselves
noisily worrying this observer.
sebastian said something:
‘look at how you all assume
to stay there murmuring yourselves.’
sebastian thought something:
‘you have visions more than some–
while life is configured and imposed.’

about the narcissism of poets,
preachers, and various madmen
…since they don’t really matter. They’ve all been tweaked anyway
